Former Church reconfigured into four superb homes

by Francesca

A chapel was first built at Swan Hill in the town of Shrewsbury in 1767.  In 1868, this was demolished and replaced with the current building; schoolrooms were then added in 1880.  Charters Property Ltd who specialize in property development, consultancy and project management, recently purchased the deconsecrated church and have transformed the building into a prestigious development of four fabulous homes.

Sensitivity was key when renovating the property and the majority of the original features have been preserved.  Original stone walls, lintels and cills have been repaired and impeccably replaced.  The walls and roofs have been insulated and energy saving measures implemented to create a comfortable, efficient living environment.

Clement 2 and Clement 4 Conservation Rooflights were installed throughout, in keeping with the traditional look outside and allowing masses of light in through the beautiful, high ceilings.

James Charter, Director of Charters Property Ltd, said:

“We have used Clement rooflights on numerous projects and appreciate the fast delivery  and easy installation.  Their products have met with Local Authority approval on all of our heritage sensitive work.  This means we can specify a great looking product in the knowledge that it will also fulfil our planning criteria.  We will continue to use Clement rooflights on future projects.”

Manufactured for either a slate or a tile profile, Clement rooflights are constructed using recycled steel sections, making them particularly strong and robust.  The surface is coated in polyzinc and then polyester powder paint, ensuring the rooflights are durable and giving them a good-looking finish.

Available in eight standard sizes, Clement Conservation Rooflights are made from high performance, argon filled, 24mm insulated glass units and come with a revolutionary warm T bar system.  Available with several glazing options, including self-cleaning glass as standard, Clement’s rooflights are manufactured to EN ISO 9001 standards and rigorously tested against air, wind and rain to BS6375.  They have achieved a BFRC Window Energy Rating of A+.

The standard range of rooflights is generally available to be delivered within 2-3 working days.  If one of the standard sizes is not appropriate, Clement also manufacture bespoke rooflights.

The Clement Windows Group manufactures an innovative range of steel windows, doors, screens and rooflights for both private residences and commercial projects.  Based just outside London in Surrey, Clement’s window products can be seen in a number of prestigious projects across the UK and abroad.  Prominent examples include Battersea Power Station and Old Marylebone Town Hall in London, The Pithay and YMCA in Bristol, Norwich City Hall, the University of Manchester and the Eldorado Building in New York’s Manhattan.
